LEED certification has become de rigueur for large new-construction buildings, but now a local developer is building single-family homes in Arlington with features that earn them the coveted certification.

The first of these homes from FMS Properties (also one of the first residences in the county to earn LEED Silver certification) is going up at 5734 8th Street N (map) with a projected delivery date of August 2013.

Green features of the four-bedroom Bluemont Sustainable Home will include opacity-switching smart glass that converts from clear to frosted, hybrid appliances, and a climate control system that learns your habits and adjusts accordingly. The home will also come equipped with ENERGY STAR-certified appliances and feature insulation, thermal wrapping and air filtration systems that goes beyond typical construction standards. The home will have a $1.075 million price tag.

The home on 8th Street will not be the last sustainable home from FMS Properties. Developer Waqas Ali told UrbanTurf that he hopes to break ground on a second home at 2101 N Dinwiddie Street later this year.
